Movie vs Book

Is the movie better than the book?

If I just watch the movie, could I understand? Is it the same story or is it just based on the book?

If you have a similar question to these, you should check this:

According to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), most users rated 3-5 stars (out of 10) the movie. Although the movie was only showed on TV and it was from Oprah Wimfrey, the expectations a lot of viewers had, were unachieved. The acting of Halle Berry was bad but that depends on the viewer.

Dialect

Use of Dialect

From the opening chapter, the most strident aspect of Hurston’s narration is the thick dialect, but after deciphering the unfamiliar spellings and grammar usage, the dialogue does not disgrace her race but instead highlights the mannerisms and customs of an orally documented generation.

Instead of clinging to a single pattern of dialogue to represent all characters, Hurston has twisted and mottled each character’s language pattern to reflect realistic speech, but what makes the dialogue most believable are the frequent colloquialisms and analogies. Though discussed less frequently than the dialect, the rich narration in Their Eyes Were Watching God is incomparable.
